Microsoft reveals plans to transform campus by 2023

Microsoft plans upgrade for Redmond headquarters

The software giant will start building a multibillion-dollar campus overhaul next fall, adding 18 new buildings to its Redmond campus which already boasts 125 buildings.

Considering that Apple recently opened its new Apple Park campus and Amazon is looking for a second headquarters, Microsoft's expansion plans are not exactly surprising. To create more space and facilitate a pedestrian-friendly environment, the company will move its 131 buildings closer together and relocate parking facilities underground. Apple Inc. opened its sprawling new main campus in Cupertino, California, earlier this year, while Amazon.com Inc.is now looking for a city to host a second headquarters projected to cost more than $5 billion. Under the plan, the company will tear down 12 of the buildings now used by employees and build 18 new facilities in their place that are expected to be up to twice as tall. With the added square footage, the campus' space will be the equivalent of 180 football fields.

Trump casts doubt on 'Access Hollywood' tapes
CNN producer Vaughn Sterling tweeted his incredulity about the article's claim that Mr Trump denied his involvement in the tape. The president used the "locker room" chatter excuse a few days later, on the night of the second presidential debate.

Microsoft says that the new campus will be more open and less formal.

Many Americans have never played cricket, but Microsoft does have a lot of employees from India, including CEO Satya Nadella, who's a big fan of the game, and from other former British colonies. There would also be a community space for 8,000 to 12,000 people in an open-air plaza and outdoor areas for running and walking, green spaces and walking trails. The bridge will also tie into a forthcoming Link Light Rail station set to arrive in 2023. The campus revamp promises more natural light and a setting to "foster the type of creativity that will lead to ongoing innovation" writes Microsoft. As a Zero Waste Certified campus we will continue to focus further on waste-reduction initiatives.

Manchester United and Man City could be put off spending large sums on the players considering they can be signed for free next summer.

After decades in which high-tech workplaces were defined by bland, low-slung office buildings, the largest tech companies have seized on the idea that their campus designs can be assets in terms of attracting talent in a highly competitive marketplace, as well as making a strong visual statement about the company's brand, culture and values.
